November Friends of WMS Blog Waltz

Thursday, November 17, 2011


Hello and welcome to the November Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps blog Waltz. The theme is Winter/Christmas. Here's my card! (If you're here for my CASE Study card scroll down.)


My card was totally inspired by Kelly Schirmer's fabulous card here! I just loved the layout, I had to make a 'Clare' version! I kept the color scheme warm and vintagey!


I love the santa silhouette from Santa's Coming to Town, it's just magical. I made a simple rosette from vintage music sheet and the larger Sizzix rosette die. The edges are distressed with Antique Linen distress ink.


The sentiment is from the same Santa's Coming to Town stamp set from Waltzingmouse Stamps. I added a little lace to the bottom and rubbed it with distress ink.


The gorgeous papers are from the Basic Grey Jovial Collection. I just love that plaid!! Ok, enjoy the rest of the blog waltz!! Have a great day! : )
